A "Hot Topics" segment of "The View" featuring Christian and politically conservative cohost Candace Cameron Bure raised emotions on the largely liberal debate panel as it delved into the issues of abortion.

According to The Wrap, the topic centered around GOP presidential candidate and governor John Kasich's signing of a bill defunding Planned Parenthood in Ohio.

When confronted with the howls of indignation from her fellow cohosts about the loss of women's healthcare availability, Candace was quick to stand up for the governor's decision, saying, "There's two things about that, though. We have to remember that he’s not taking away any money from women’s healthcare. So the money that would have gone to organizations that do perform abortions are now being redistributed to local clinics that provide all the same women’s healthcare [but] do not perform abortions. So there's no money that's being taken away."

Whoopi Goldberg, who had introduced the topic, questioned where women are going to get healthcare if they don't have money and Planned Parenthood is defunded.

Candace was indignant, saying, "They don't have to have money, Whoopi. The government money is now going to those other clinics."

A short time later, panel contributor Sunny Hostin cohost spoke directly to Candace, saying that she too is pro-life but doesn't want Planned Parenthood's ability to perform other women's healthcare services to be taken away from them.

Candace replied, "He's not taking that way from them."

Back on the topic of abortion, Whoopi insisted, “You can’t decide for some woman what she needs. I can’t decide."

She gestured at Candace and said, "You can’t decide. None of us can decide for some other woman’s life, and she should have the right to make that decision without getting picketed, threatened, made to feel bad — whatever your religious belief is.”

Whoopi's words were met with applause from the audience and a triumphant smirk from cohost Joy Behar.

Candace did not agree, saying, "That child has no voice! You have to have a voice for them."
